The Torbay Hospital paediatric diabetes team outlines how putting strategies such as engagement with children and their families at the centre of its new approach has improved outcomes. Two case studies are presented to show how care outcome measurements do not always capture every aspect of success.
Tracy Corbett describes her and her family’s experiences in the period leading up to her son’s diagnosis with type 1 diabetes and how their lives have changed as a result. She makes a number of suggestions about how awareness of symptoms can be raised and how patients and their families can be supported to achieve the best outcomes.
